A message from Tom Mauser...

=====================
Written by Cynthia Fridsma
=====================

Today I received an email from Tom Mauser about the shooting in the library of Columbine High School in 1999 -- one of 12 innocent kids who lost their lives for no reason at all. His 15-year old son was one of the victims.

These tragedies keep happening, and so far, Congress has failed to take common-sense action to stop them -- even though nine in 10 Americans have agreed that expanding background checks would help close the loopholes that put guns in the hands of dangerous people and prevent future violence.

Today, OFA and allied organizations are standing up for a national Day of Action to ask members of Congress: What will it take to finally act to prevent gun violence?

In December, when Tom heard about the shooting in Newtown, he sat in his office and broke down. He was watching another community torn apart by guns -- more parents grieving, more kids who would never see graduation, or a wedding, or a family of their own.

In his email he asked if I wanted to put a link to help the president to do one thing for gun violence prevention. 

It's a link to an online petition and even though we're not a political website, we decided to put the link on our website since we have to do one thing for gun violence prevention.

Go to https://my.barackobama.com/page/s/do-one-thing-gun-violence-prevention and sing the petition if you want to make a difference.

Heather Nova Web Browser 

=================== 
written by Cynthia Fridsma 
=================== 

Amsterdam, July 6, 2013.  

First of all we want to congratulate Heather with her birthday and because it's a special day, our website also exists 10 years, I decided to celebrate it with the creation of a Heather Nova Web Browser that I programmed in MS-Visual Studio 2010. 

The browser contains direct links to: 
heathernova.com, heathernova.us, heather nova on Wikipedia, heather nova video clips on you tube, heather nova on twitter and heather nova guitar tabs.

The browser also uses various search engines to find any article about Heather Nova on the Internet.

However, you can also use the browser to surf the web. 

 

The browser also offers a screen capture utility. If you press down the F7 button, then the system will create an image of the current web page you're viewing.

The Heather Nova Browser will open MS-Word for you, with the picture of the web page into your document, so that you can write your own article about the website or whatever...

The browser will also store every URL you enter an external file that you can either delete or edit.

You can download the browser on our website if you go to the  "downloads" section on our webiste.

The browser works on Windows XP service pack 3, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

p.s. the browser is freeware and doesn't contain spyware, it's based on MS-IE technology.

The old Heather Nova Flash site is back online!


====================
written by Cynthia Fridsma
====================

There's some great news for those of you who liked the old nova flash site, because we decided to bring the site back to life. There's a reason for this: we started the Heather Nova Online Magazine in '01. In '03, I registered heathernova.us and this site was a fact! So this is our tenth anniversary and what is the best way to celebrate? To bring back some of that old magic we all know as multimedia! So we proudly present the old heathernova website that I created in '08. 

The flash site was online from '08 until '10, and now it's back with the original messages that Heather wrote...

Should the USA send weapons to Syria?

======================
Written by Cynthia Fridsma
==================

In the Washington Post, I read an article that the United States should step up its involvement in the conflict in Syria. Sen. John McCain, charged that President Obama has failed to follow through on a statement that the use of chemical weapons in the conflict would constitute a “red line.”

I agree with Sen. McCain that the use of chemical weapons is wrong. But is sending weapons to the rebels a good idea? I don't think so Mr. McCain. Why? Chances are that these weapons will be used against the USA in the future. Among the rebels, there are a lot of people fighting the "jihad." It's quite possible that some of them have connections with Al-Qaeda.

A nightmare in NEWTOWN, Connecticut

====================         
written by Cynthia Fridsma
====================         

In the New York Times, I read about the tragedy that took place in Newtown. On December 14, 2012, a maniac came shooting in the Sandy Hook Elementary School. 

My thoughts are with the people in Newtown, Connecticut and I would like to offer my condolences on behalf of our website. I would also like to ask for a moment of silence for the 28 people who died because of a lunatic with a gun. Among the victims were 20 children. They had a whole life in front of them, and it ended brutally.

In my opinion it's way to easy for a lunatic to buy weapons, it's time to discuss gun control.

You can read the shocking news on the New York Times.

Videos of Amelia Earhart 

I've added a few videos on our site about Amelia Earhart, including a documentary.

Webmaster tips and tricks

Perhaps sometimes you wonder where do the visitors come from and which webpages are of the most interest to your audience? I wrote a short article titled: 

How to monitor your site performance?


===================  
Written by Cynthia Fridsma 
=================== 

Google Analytics is a great tool, but Google Analytics doesn't show you all the details you might need to keep your website interesting to your audience, and that's when you can use PHP to measure your site.  

If you really want to know what's happening on your site, then you can use PHP and MySQL to track your site. 

First, you need to create a MySQL database to store the referring URLs. 

Go to the section "Creativity, Webdesign tips, PHP tips and tricks" to read the complete article.

Guest book

==================
written by Cynthia Frisma
==================

Due to spam, I decided to use Facebook as a "Guestbook" on our site. You cannot only comment on the many articles on our beloved website, but you can also use Facebook to tell us how you think about our site and add suggestions on how we can improve the Heather Nova Online Magazine and believe it or not, it really works!

Lots of spammers are abusing Google, Bing and Yahoo to find online guest books because they love to abuse a guest book with their spam.

However, since we decided to fight spam, we use Facebook as a "guest book" and I haven't seen spam on our site ever since we decided to change our policy.

Sure, spammers still know how to reach us by email, but no longer directly on our site.

It's also the reason why we no longer support a forum because you can use Facebook on our site to share your point of view. Still, if you need to "sign" our guest book, you can go to the section "Guestbook" and tell the world how you think about our site. It's not a problem for us to use Facebook, but for spammers it is because they will be exposed with their Facebook profile.

If you have a website and want to have a "guest book," book" then do the same thing as we do: use Facebook so that you know that you're dealing with real people.

Do you want to help us to keep this site alive?

========================== 
written by Cynthia Fridsma 
========================== 

Hosting a website like the Heather Nova Online Magazine cost a lot of money. This price for the server is $ 900.00 a year. We host the site by a company in the USA because we also want to support the USA. We want to keep the site alive, and you can help us with that by opening your own homepage on our website for  $ 10.00 a year.

Voyager 1 Reaches Final Boundary Before Interstellar Space

The Voyager 1, operated by the U.S. space agency NASA, has entered a newly discovered region at the edge of the solar system, and is close to crossing a final boundary into instellar space.

Scientists are calling this region between between the solar system and deep space the "magnetic highway."

Astronomers say Voyager is still under the influence of our Sun, but that it has reached an area in which highly charged energy particles from interstellar space are beginning to stream in.
Project scientist Edward Stone of the California Institute of Technology says astronomers did not previously know about this final boundary discovered by Voyager.
